I am a creative wedding photographer from Derbyshire, bursting with excitement and ideas for all things wedding. I know how much planning goes into your special day and am passionate about ensuring all of those details won’t be forgotten and will bring you joy for years to come. Your wedding will be delicately and discreetly shot, utilising natural light and to ensure that all of those fleeting, wonderful moments are captured forever. I truly photograph from the heart.
I believe that one of the key things that shapes the memory of your wedding day, and you will not realise until the day is passed, is how your photographer made you feel.
The key thing for me is that you enjoy your day. I do not dictate what I think should happen. I will let the day unfold and I fit in around you. I will not take you away for hours at a time. There will be no cheesy poses. Just a pre agreed (small) number of group shots. I never shout or order people around but aim for these to take as little time as possible.
I aim to catch real moments between you, your guests and family. As well some pretty cool portraits of everyone. I will always be calm, unobtrusive and watching out for details, beautiful shoes, you fiddling with your new Wedding band, the sunlight through the trees. Fleeting moments and little things that will bring memories flooding back.
Relaxed shots of just the two of you are usually split into several short sessions throughout the day, your guests won’t notice you’ve taken time out and we make use of the changing light for a varied feel to your portraits. Ask me about booking a Pre Wedding shoot to see how I will work with you both on this part of the day and to help you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible (which makes for the best pictures)!
I will be with you from the morning’s build up all the way through to the dance floor action in the evening. I will get to know you before the day, noting your hopes and dreams so that I can tailor my approach and timings so that the day itself flows as you envisage and is not a day long photo shoot. I know it will be the best day of your life.
Have a look at my blog and galleries to see how I have documented previous Weddings. If you like what you see, lets meet for a cup of tea (unfortunately I am now arranging Zoom, Face Time of Skype calls to replace my usual meet ups) and a more detailed look at my past Weddings. It’s important to me that the whole experience of planning is easy and enjoyable.
Feel free to call any time to talk through your plans and ideas. I would love to meet you both in person if I can, over the phone or via Skype.
